An international break can only mean 1 thing for Newcastle United fan Colin Harrison; a chance to chalk another ground off the list doing the 92… An email from Virgin Trains with the offer of cheap first class travel ignited an idea to tick off a ground in the capital and allow me to enjoy the journey instead of a four hour drive each way.
